Class 3, Part 2. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course which Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.
In this Android services tutorial, Marko will show you how to create an Android service that will pull data from from a twitter-like web app and then store that data locally on the device, making it available to your Android app even when it is offline.
After watching this tutorial, you will know how to:
- Create the Java class representing your service
- Register the service in the Android manifest file (androidManifest.xml)
- Start the service
You can find all of the videos from the Android Bootcamp Screencast Series here.
